"It was a good game tonight, and the result came after a lot of studying and preparation. We took our chances well and I am happy to be moving on to the semi-final round. We have done our best tonight and the fans here were always behind us. We didn't have a lot of time to prepare for this tournament, but we are getting better with every game and I hope that will continue." John Obuh, Nigeria coach
